Item Description: Translate description
Bound manuscript on laid paper, 136 pp, with vellum cover, titled Observations Upon the Rise and Progress of the Late Rebellion Against K. Charles the first; In so far as it was carried on by a malcontented faction in Scotland, under the pretext of reformation.

Research indicates that the manuscript could possibly be an early copy of the Bishop of Dunkeld, Henry Guthrie's book published in 1702 as, The Memoirs of Henry Guthrie, Late Bishop of Dunkeld: Containing an Impartial Relation of the Affairs of Scotland, Civil and Ecclesiastical from the Year 1637 to the Death of King Charles I.

Henry Guthrie (also spelled Guthry) was a 17th-century Scottish historian and cleric. Even though King Charles I promoted him to minister in Stirling in 1632, Guthrie was ambiguously involved in the Covenanter Wars and the Wars of the Three Kingdoms that deposed the king and executed him in 1649. Later, he was stripped of his position in 1648 but reinstated in 1656. He became Bishop of Dunkeld in 1665 and held the position until his death in 1676. During his lifetime, he published an account of the rebellion. It was in circulation before it was officially printed in 1702. It is possible the manuscript offered in the lot is an early copy, produced either in 1650 or prior to its official printing. The British Museum catalog references a copy with a similar title with the publication date of 1702 in a folio. There are no other descriptive terms for the item; therefore, it is difficult to determine whether or not the manuscript is similar to the item offered here. No other sales records for a comparable copy have been discovered, making this an exceptionally rare piece.

Provenance: N. Flayderman and Co., Inc.

Condition: Some damage to the cover on the verso, toning of the paper, and light pencil markings from a previous owner. Light soiling on the first few pages; otherwise, the book is in remarkable condition.

EST $ 1000 - 1500
